| Street View

This early movie house was located at 852 Flatbush Avenue between Church and Caton Avenues on the west side of the street.

It was close by the Flatbush National Bank which was taken over by the Manufacturers Trust Company in 1948. Mortimer Boch, whom owned Flatbush Pontiac, was a prominent stock holder in the original bank.

It existed prior to 1911 and closed after the new Flatbush Theater on Church Avenue opened circa 1915.

This Savoy Theater is not to be confused with the later and larger Savoy Theater also listed on this site. It was located at Bedford Avenue and Lincoln Place north of Eastern Parkway some distance away.

I have visited this site looking for the SAVOY on Bedford and Lincoln mentioned by JF Lundy. The four Savoys ;osted in New York on the website do not describe the Savoy at the Brooklyn intersection. Can someone clear this up? Does anyone have any information or history on this grand edifice, still standing, but now a community center just off Eastern Parkway. I just drove by it again the other day. Don K.

A Kimball organ was installed in the Savoy Theater in 1925.
